Purchase exceeds Rs 1 Cr to be displayed on public domain: AP CM

Amaravati, Aug 14 (UNI) Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy said that any purchases which exceeds Rs one crore would hereafter be displayed on public domain for transparency and to provide corruption free governance.
During a review meeting here on Wednesday, the Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy said that there were scams in the previous government from the purchases of school uniforms to automobiles. His government had to ensure that all deals should be done in a fair and transparent manner, he added.
